The 40 Book Challenge is a personal challenge for each student, not a contest or competition between students or classes. The Core beliefs are as follows:
- Everybody reads here. Let’s get started.
- Strong readers have lots of reading experiences. You need to be a good all-around reader.
- There’s the right book for you out there somewhere. Let’s find it.
- Whether you read or not isn’t a choice, but what you read is YOUR choice.
- Your reading life matters.
